Default Book: Paleo Diet for Athletes

Just picked this book up at Barnes and Noble today. Have not seen it previously.

Amazon.com: The Paleo Diet for Athletes: A Nutritional Formula for Peak Athletic Performance (9781594860898): Loren Cordain, Joe Friel: Books Amazon.com: The Paleo Diet for Athletes: A Nutritional Formula for Peak Athletic Performance (9781594860898): Loren Cordain, Joe Friel: Books

Quote:
Product Description
Loren Cordain, Ph.D., follows his success of The Paleo Diet with the first book ever to detail the exercise-enhancing effects of a diet similar to that of our Stone Age ancestors.

When The Paleo Diet was published, advocating a return to the diet of our ancestors (high protein, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables), the book received brilliant reviews from the medical and nutritional communities. Jennie Brand-Miller, coauthor of the bestselling Glucose Revolution, called it "without a doubt the most nutritious diet on the planet." Doctors Michael and Mary Dan Eades, authors of Protein Power, said, "We can't recommend The Paleo Diet highly enough."

Now Dr. Cordain joins with USA triathlon and cycling elite coach Joe Friel to adapt the Paleo Diet to the needs of athletes. The authors show:
o Why the typical athletic diet (top-heavy with grains, starches, and refined sugars) is detrimental to recovery, performance, and health
o How the glycemic load and acid-base balance impact performance
o Why consumption of starches and simple sugars is only beneficial in the immediate post-exercise period

At every level of competition, The Paleo Diet for Athletes can maximize performance in a range of endurance sports.

I checked this book out a little bit at barnes and noble seemed very interesting. But it is geared towards the endurance athlete.

Keep us updated on what you learn.
